About Me

Please note I am extremely busy right now with my work so am mainly looking for local shoots at this time. I'm reading messages and accepting friend requests as they come in but my apologies if I don't reply right away, I will aim to get back to everyone as soon as I have a free afternoon to sit down with a cup of tea and concentrate!


Hello! I'm Louise Knight-Richardson owner of Dearest Jackdaw. I'm an Artist, Photographer and Maker from the South Coast of England. I take photographs of all sorts of pretty things. I like to rummage for treasure and rescue forgotten textiles. I collect buttons, vintage cameras and lace. I sew lots of little bits and pieces and own an antique mannequin called Kitty.

I design and make clothing, jewellery and accessories. My handmade pieces contain a happy combination of both new and reclaimed materials but are predominantly recycled. The beautiful thing about using reclaimed materials is not only does it help reduce unnecessary landfill, it allows many of my pieces to be one-of-a-kind and each and every little creation has a unique story hidden amongst it’s stitches. It’s the mystery and curiosity behind this idea that I am so in love with and you will often find me foraging around antique stores, junk shops and flea markets looking for unusual, vintage or forgotten textiles to give a new life to.

I'm on ModelMayhem to collaborate on photoshoots. I'm a photographer too and have a photography profile here also but I would love to experience shoots from a different perspective, and gain some beautiful images collaborating with other creatives.

The styles I tend to work with seem to be a cross-over between whimsical, fairytale and beauty in decay, tattered doll type clothing but I am always happy to work to others ideas if they fit with what I do ♥
